Brilliant day out - brilliant sanctuary. What an excellent idea! Keep up the good work. Can't wait to visit again.
Lots of things to do to keep the children entertained. Safe play park, pony rides, feeding the animals and the chance to see the animals close up. All of the animals were well kept, the grounds were clean and safe. We have been asked if we can go back every weekend since! Lovely, helpful staff made the day even better!
Had a great couple of hours here. The sanctuary isn't an animal theme park, nor does it pretend to be. They simply take in and care for injured wild animals. The staff we met where brilliant and extremely friendly. We loved the relaxed feel of the place. Good play area for the kids. There is a lovely picnic area with... More
The animals were in a very poor state and we left after less than 10 minutes. My 5 year old son said to his daddy "look baby ducks" when my husband looked they were baby chicks which had dried up on rocks in the bird enclosures. The whole place stank and there were 2 young girls looking after the animals... More
Thank you for your comments but we are replying because some of your comments are written without any knowledge and based on assumptions only, incorrectly. The two young girls of 12 "looking after the animals" you saw are neither staff nor volunteers - they are the owner's daughter and her friend taking care of their own horses. The place does... More
Went on a wildlife hands on tour with 2boys here , and its really worth a visit for any animal lover. In all honesty my son is mad about animals but his friend isn't , but both really enjoyed it. It's good to see native species strange how good it is to handle and talk about a hedgehog when we... More
Just wanted to say a thank you to yourselves and all the other visitors who took the time to write very positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We have learnt from the comments this summer that there are two quite different types of visitor to The Sanctuary - those who care greatly about animal welfare and the work we do caring... More
We visited the sanctuary today and really enjoyed it. The animals are obviously well cared for and some of them had great, quirky characters, especially the horses and goats!. Staff were only to happy to answer questions/talk about the animals and the entry fee, snacks and animal feed were all reasonably priced. Will definitely be making a return visit, our... More
Visited after buying voucher from Living Social for £6 and have to say i wouldnt have been happy to pay anymore. It is a small sanctuary and on entering you can see the place in its entirety. It is a little rundown and I feel the dead chicks which are used to feed the larger birds can be disturbing to... More
Thank you for your comment on Trip Advisor and yes we totally agree about your comment about " a little run down". However, do bear in mind we are a small charitable organisation that is run by volunteers and have just survived a long recession, appalling wet summers and a horrendous winter. Our priority is to pay for animal feed... More

Today was our first visit here and we will definitely be going back. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming as well as chatting to us about the wide range of animals they care for. It has a real family atmosphere for a worthwhile cause. You can even sponsor the animals and birds to help with their upkeep costs to feel... More
